A Lil' Weekend Recap

If there has ever been a perfect weekend, this was it. 
Here's a not-so-little recap of our busy busy weekend, via phone pictures, of course!

Friday was the last day of my Blueprint Cleanse, and I was craving a cheeseburger in a major way {stay tuned for a review this week}

Both my office and C's office closed early, so on Friday night we curled up at home as it poured outside, and watched Dumbo with our favorite little man.


Saturday morning we were up bright and early, off to Home Depot and the grocery store, as a family. Usually we run these errands separately, so it was such a nice treat to have C with me (so he could wrangle A while I shopped!).

During nap time, I tackled the playroom and finally cleared out some toys that A has outgrown. Now there's actually space to play. I'll be sharing some progress on the playroom soon!

That afternoon, we were off to the circus! It was so much fun - really, even as an adult - it was fun! I'm still amazed at some of the tricks the magicians perform, and A was in AWE of the animals, the clowns, and especially the canon at the end! Oh, and I rode an elephant. I don't even really know what to say, other than I was certain we would die. The whole time I kept envisioning the elephant tripping on something, and those teeny tiny chains not doing a thing to save us. Thankfully A didn't care that his momma was having a panic attack, and smiled and waved for the camera the whole time!

Saturday night we went out to dinner, but I didn't snap a picture since I spent the entire meal asking A to sit down and eat. This is why we "brunch" and "lunch" with a toddler, and never do dinner. Lesson learned.


Sunday morning was another chilly start, so we were able to be really lazy until nap time. While A was asleep, I made this to bring to our friends' BBQ. I was pretty darn impressed with myself, considering I never, ever, make anything (let alone from scratch!)

Sunday afternoon we were off to visit with friends who have the cutest little girl ever. A happens to think she's pretty cool, and these two had so much fun together!

I tried to convince my little guy to take a picture with me - and this is how that ended. Story of my life.

 A fell asleep on the ride home and actually stayed asleep when I put him in his bed. That might be a first.


Monday morning, C was the best husband EVER and let me sleep in until 9:30. I don't know what was wrong with me but at 7 I couldn't even open my eyes I was so exhausted. I don't think I've slept until 9:30 in over 3 years, so to say that was a treat would be an understatement. Thanks babe!

The rest of Monday was full of fun outside, with this crazy monkey. He cracks me up.

 Hope each and every one of you had a glorious Memorial Day Weekend!


  1. What a fun weekend!! He is such a cutie!! The extra day off was much appreciated in our house! :) I think that I could have slept until 9:30 one day this weekend...we went out for a friend's birthday and I am just now recovering (not so much from drinking but from the lack of sleep)!! xo

  2. FUN weekend! Glad you enjoyed it with your sweet guys!! I actually LOVE the pic of you and A so, so real and sweet. And his facial expressions kill me! LOVE!

  3. You are a much stronger woman than me for finishing your cleanse! I couldn't even make it a day on the Dr. Oz Detox. Looks like you guys had a busy BUSY weekend too! A must have had a blast at the circus!


Thank you for your comments! I read each and every one of them!
